Is there difference help?
is there a difference between a subwoofer of 8, 10, 12 or 15 inches
With reference to the sound quality, notes or frequencies themselves, if they are of the same brand and series?

except volume, bigger will put out more SPL with the same wattage.

All else being equal, bigger will be more efficient, more linear, have less distortion, and a flatter frequency response.

I will always run the largest sub I can fit or multiples of large subs. The only downside is the space taken up and that can be nearly eliminated by going IB.

Of course, there are exceptions to everything.

In the same series, assuming the ts parameters are similar or as I said two subs that are identical in every way but the size, the larger one is going to be better in every way.
